Table 14-2



Table 14-2 shows the payoff matrix for Wal-Mart and Target from every combination of pricing strategies for the popular PlayStation 4. At the start of the game each firm charges a low price and each earns a profit of $7,000.



Refer to Table 14-2. For each firm, is there a better outcome than the current situation in which each firm charges the low price and earns a profit of $7,000?



Yes, the firms can implicitly collude and agree to charge a higher price.



No, any other strategy hurts consumers.



No, there is no incentive for each firm to consider any other strategy.
